“It’s just cruel, it ain’t sweet / To count my blessings easily / It goes 3, 2, 1, me” chants the semi-synthesized, crispy vocals of Tove Styrke. If anyone knows the gold dream that every broke af millennial has while sipping $5 cold brew is Big Wild and Tove Styrke. Their collab track, “Aftergold,” captures all the money-n-gold desire that we all love to dream about, but try to repress it by practicing bitter optimism – or counting blessings. This tri-hop electropop has an immediate stickiness that keeps replaying in your head even after it finishes. Play below:

Big Wild is an electronic artist based in Los Angeles who has already played in major festivals during 2016. His new 5-track EP, Invincible, will be out on February 10th. Tove Styrke is a Swedish poptress whose recent record, Kiddo, came out back in June 2015. As of now, Big Wild is planning to hit the stages again in the spring:
